On the road, you need to be responsible as you don't want to have an accident of any sort. There is always the traffic lights and the people giving you a signal to make sure that nothing goes wrong. No one would want to have an accident on the road and for sure, you don't want to. An accident on the road would take most of the time of everyone since it would cause some people to stand on the middle of the road. It means that you don't need to be the one to cause the havoc, but you would be affected as well when you are close because of the traffic that is causes.
In this game, you need to get to the finish line, just like the rest of the games you have played before. However, the road is full of cars and an accident is bound to happen. You can avoid it, but you can't do that for a long time since the game is designed that way. You would earn money each time you crossed the finish line. You can use the money to buy some upgrades for your car. The game gets harder and more difficult as you make some progress.
